4 Eggs, beaten.
16 oz. Small Curd Cottage Cheese
In the Cast Iron Skillet:
Heat in the oven, as it preheats, until the butter is melted.
Swirl the Butter and Oil to coat the skillet. Brush to coat the sides.
Fit them all into the bottom of the pan.
In a medium mixing bowl:
Salt Baking Powder
In large mixing bowl:
Stir by hand to combine well.
Fold in the Chopped Onion by hand.
Pour the Batter into the Skillet.
Bake 25 - 30 minutes.
Remove the Skillet to a rack to cool for 10 minutes.
Run a paring knife around the edge of the Skillet.
Place a large serving Skillet over the top of the Skillet and carefully invert the Cornbread onto the Skillet. The Onions on the bottom make a great presentation for serving.
